[image]Eastern Mongolia (before fire, false color) - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
This false-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image shows no sign of the extensive burn scar that covers Eastern Mongolia in later images. The light blue cloud that covers a portion of the area south of the lake, Buyr Nuur, is probably a cloud, not smoke since MODIS did not detect a fire in the area. Light green indicates the presence of vegetation where the burn scar appears in images taken on October 23, 2003...

[image]Westernmost Mongolia - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
On May 27, 2002, MODIS captured this image of western Mongolia. Notice how the snow-capped mountains to the north and west seem to be blocking any moisture from the interior, creating the arid landscape dotted with small lakes. Sensor: Terra/MODIS. Data Start Date: 5/27/02. Data End Date: 5/27/02.

[image]Fires Near Lake Baikal - NASA image by Jeff Schmaltz, Goddard Space Flight Center.
In southern Russia’s Irkutsk region, dozens of fires were burning between the snow-capped Vostochnny Mountains and the Angara River on May 26, 2006. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image and fire detections (marked in red) as it passed overhead that day. A large, smoky fire was also burning in Mongolia on this day. Lake Baikal still had ice clinging to its shoreline in places, and part of the Angara River was still ice-covered...

[image]Sand Dunes in Har Nuur (Black Lake), Western Mongolia: Image of the Day - NASA -- Astronaut photograph eol.jsc.nasa.gov/scripts/sseop/photo.pl?mission=ISS013&roll=E&frame=78506 ISS013-E-78506 was acquired September 7, 2006, with a Kodak 760C digital camera using a 400 mm lens, and is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations experiment and the Image Science & Analysis Group, Johnson Space Center. The spaceflight.nasa.gov/home/index.html International Space Station Program supports the laboratory to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
Har Nuur (''Black Lake'') is located in western Mongolia's Valley of Lakes, part of a system of closed basins stretching across central Asia. These basins are the remnants of larger paleolakes ( means ''ancient'') that began to shrink approximately five thousand years ago as regional climate became drier. Like other lakes in the region, Har Nuur relies on precipitation, growing in the spring and shrinking in the summer...

[image]Mongolia - Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Snow covers Mongolia in patches in this true-color Aqua MODIS image from December 21, 2003. Mongolia sits at an extremely high altitude; no point is lower than 1,800 feet (550 meters), while the highest point stretches to 15,266 feet (4,653 meters). Snowfall is normally light and blows away quickly during the winter, so to see this much snow on the ground at once is rather unusual. Sensor: Aqua/MODIS...

Large fires were burning at the border of Russia and Mongolia on May 1, 2006, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over the region. The actively burning portions of the fires are outlined in red, and plumes of thick, brownish-gray smoke blow southeast. Dark, almost charcoal-colored burn scars are spread across the landscape. At upper left, snow still covers mountain peaks despite the arrival of spring more than a month before.
